Looks for the usual holes in a site - i.e. SQL Injection/ XSS redirection/ etc - all the usual script kiddie automated bot stuff...
In fact, I am pretty sure that i am right about this tool that scans your site, that it pinged the GAnalytics to give readings of hits...
My traffic shot up like 2,000 uniques in a day and it must be that....
All other traffic stast seem regular and normal....

Alternatively you can add a filter for your own IP address (or whatever IP address the scanner runs from) to Google Analytics.
If you're running AdSense or some other advertising code that the scanner might execute, you may want to disable that, too.
